I'm 37 yrs old,5'5, 155 lbs mother of two, workaholic small business owner, smoker, actively workout 5-7 days a week (I know that's a crazy combo). I'm in generally good health in spite of my bad habit & high stress life & I'm a positive, God loving, amazingly blessed woman!
I've always struggled with my weight,I was born chunky & seemingly born with a slow metabolism. Paired with my love of cooking & food...well...my heaviest weight was 225lbs. For the last ten years, I've committed to working out & though I've never grown to love it,I "just do it" & its definitely helped me keep my weight under control,ahem, more or less. Over the years, I've tried everything from diet pills to coolsculpting & a bit of everything in between yet my body seems to love fat as much as my mouth loves food! I know I'll never be skinny, my build & genetics say so but I've always wanted to be shed of my rolls & meat curtain (my belly's name). My vigorous workouts have given me a nice amount of muscle tone under my fat but the fat is definitely showing the muscle who's in charge. I suppose I could give up all carbs & sweets & yummies but I know I'd be miserable! I've tried it for a day or five & boyyyy...u didn't wanna cross my path, lol. I love myself, never feel like I'm undesirable yet I've always been unhappy about my shape. I've lived with this feeling my whole life & those who have as well know exactly how difficult it can be at times. As much as I've wanted liposuction,I simply couldn't imagine going through the recovery period. Realistically, my life demands are too much to take a two week vacation from usefulness. Yet & still,I occasionally haunt this site & others while fantasizing about getting a procedure to rid myself of my unwanted body fat.
That's how I found tickle lipo,a relatively new procedure in the US which promises far less downtime & no general anesthesia (huge plus because I don't want to go under for various reasons). I've searched & researched & finally made a few appointments for consults & now (dramatic drumroll) my surgery is less than two weeks away!! Yay!! I'm super excited, not all that apprehensive but kinda pinching myself about the fact that I'm actually gonna do this! The money!! The downtime!! The risk !! Most importantly, the results!!!!!
There's so many things I've obsessed over since making the appointment & I'll share as much as I can...I have a million things to do today but I'll continue to update & promise to upload photos as they become available. Have a blessed day!
